Holiday Cheer!

The countdown to 2024 has begun, and the holiday season is in full swing in Kansas City! We talk about our favorite holiday traditions each year, driving to see the lights and enjoying our city’s outstanding performances. Pop-up bars are new to the holiday scene this season, each offering its unique spin on holiday cheer; however, reservations are a must! This blog post shares some of our favorite restaurants that are perfect for the holiday season. From cozy cafes to Kansas City essentials, we’ve got you covered. So please sit back, relax, and let’s dive into some mouth-watering culinary delights of Kansas City.


A Kansas City Gasthaus, established in 2010, features Austrian and Central European cuisine. The menu is composed of dishes featuring authentic ingredients, with nightly specials and a happy hour you will want to fill your stein with. Our personal favorite is the Jägerschnitzel, served only on Monday.


Ragazza Food & Wine Logo

Ragazza’s is the perfect spot for a romantic date or a casual night out with friends. Their wide selection of Italian wines perfectly compliments
their Italian family recipes. If we had to choose, the Grilled Lemon Pork Chop or the Sunday Sauce Everyday tops the list.

Gates Bar-B-Q
Double Decker Sandwich with Brisket and Sausage add Extra Crispy Fries. Need we say more?


Novel KC

Located in the East Crossroads Art District, Novel offers scratch made, contemporary dishes, highlighting seasonal ingredients. Classic cocktails, craft beer, and a large wine selection guarantee a memorable meal.


Traditional Vietnamese street food and homestyle meals are served with a focus on the Vietnamese history of broken rice. Too many favorites to list individually; however, any menu item served with a Vietnamese baguette will hit the spot.

A few other restaurants that made the top of our favorite list: Paulo & Bill, Osteria IL Centro, Le Fou Frog, Pierpont’s Restaurant, Jack Stack, and Lotus Hot Pot and Grill. Let us know some of your favorite places to share a holiday meal!
